Program Details

Program Description

Art and Design graduate students work closely in a personal studio environment, while benefiting from a highly accessible faculty. A vibrant visiting artist and lecture series provides additional influence and dialogue. Research support and graduate colloquia facilitate cultural and scholarly exploration at national and international venues.

The studio art concentration promotes advanced study in the various studio arts. M.A. studio art students are required to produce a written thesis and, at the graduate committee's discretion, may be required to hold a thesis exhibition.
